rosella - Sure thing! BLT Deviled Eggs And it's by Paula Deen, so you know it's gotta be good!
So far I'm thinking:
Nacho Bar.... never done one before but just curious... what kind of chili and cheese to you guys use?
Mini Meatball sandwiches... I wanna do them in marinara sauce like italian style instead of bbq because last year everything was really sweet so I'm wanting to get away from that this year.
Meat platter with a meathead (my first!), cheese platter and vegetable platter.
I was looking into maybe doing pinwheels but I wanted to maybe do them vegetarian because I have a few that come... any ideas? I already have a lot of cheese so I want more than just cheese in them. My theme is Vampire.
Vampire bite cupcakes (red velvet with cherry pie filling)
I really want to do a graveyard cake but I don't know if I'll have time! (chocolate with milano cookies as tombstones)
I'm renting a strawberry daquiri machine (did one last year and everyone loved it)
I would love to do a Vampire punch of some kind! Any suggestions?
this is nothing extravagant, but this was what I put out for my kids' halloween playgroup last year...some chips, kool-aid with "labels" on the jugs, some peter pumpkin cheese puffs, tombstone cookies, mini cupcakes, and I made ham and cheese mummies (cheese string wrapped with shaved ham, then wrapped in phyllo pastry that was brushed with dijon mustard, and wrapped with more puff strips to create a mummified look
I also had huge fruit and veggie trays on seasonal serving ware. It was quick, easy, and good for the age group (no one over five) hoping to do an adult party this year though, so I can really go to town
Stochey- I actually got my idea for a nacho bar on this forum 2 years ago. It was the best idea ever! Fairly inexpensive and everyone (kids and adults) loved it. I found from other experienced members that sams/BJ's, etc sells the large giant cans of nacho cheese. It was pretty inexpensive. I think it was about 5 bucks a can and it fit perfectly in the nacho machine we rented. Here's a link:
Thanks Foxall- they sound yummy. Maybe devilled eggs will be making a return this year hehe, if only just to eat bacon
or how about--
sounds yummy and with a good Halloween name could be fun

Deviled Eggs - I've done these before, and although I have trouble peeling them and they don't look so great, everyone loves them. This year I'm going to try a new recipe with bacon and tomatoes.
-for your deviled eggs, try this: prick a small hole in the top of the egg shell (easy does it), and add a couple of teaspoons of baking soda to the water before you boil them. I actually watched a YouTube video about this, and it helped me a whole bunch!
Interesting. Won't the egg dribble out of the hole though?
